I don't want to be what you want to be
I just want to be what's right for me
I don't want to see who you want to see
Because your friends are no good for me

You say that love's an open door
I see you walking out but I hear you taking more
Now you want to kick it cause you dropped on the floor

I don't want to go where you want to go
'Cause when you go you move too slow
I just want to see what I want to be
And now it seems that I want to be free

I'm hearing what you're saying
But I don't know what you're doing
And I need some things explaining
'Cause you're evil and you're using
This giving and mistaking
This reality that you're faking
Can't you justify the feeling
And the pain that you're making

You say that love's an open door
I see you walking out but I hear you taking more
Now you want to kick it cause you dropped on the floor

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
